    MGSOC - General Meeting – “Planting Well Even When the Roots Aren't Right" - Janet Macunovich

    7:00 pmBeautiful Savior Lutheran Church, Bloomfield Hills

    VMS Category: Community:Beautification: Public Areas

    Today, we have an unprecedented wide choice in plant species and variety. However, we're also in the midst of a perfect storm of production practices and economic realities that have made it all too likely that the plant we buy will not have a good root system. Despite careful selection, we find compromised root systems when we unwrap or depot new plants. Discover how this situation came about, the research attention it's getting, what you can expect to see, and fixes you should use.

    Handout for this meeting.
